What to Do When You Don’t Know What You Want to Do

 

I have a strange problem.  I want to work.   I want to do something worth while.  

I am raising and growing our children, and yes, I do know the importance of that.  However, I am still not used to sitting at home.  And what about when they are all in school??  

I am a L(icensed) P(ractical) N(urse).  I do have a career.  The hours of a nursing home, which is what I LOVE to do, aren’t very child friendly, though.  There’s also the fact that I haven’t worked in years, and by the time I do go back, I have no idea who MIGHT hire me….   :-/

I have thought and thought about other/possibly better choices, but I have no idea!  I do enjoy writing, but don’t even begin to know how to get that on a serious basis.  I think real estate would be fun, but I am not always a people type person…  I also have a hard time talking people into things…  You tell me no, well then, it’s no.   

What else??!?  I have no idea.

I am sure this will pass… I do this once a year, or so.  🙂  I’l.l just go back to loving and enjoying my babies and growing the extra one.  We find out what it is in 11 days!  So excited!!  We discussed and revamped names today.  I am very happy with both, boy and girl, names, now.  🙂

Good Night World.  Hope to talk to you, again, soon!

Weekly Nut Note

I REALLY have to start writing down the things my 4 year old says…

He has hit the age where he says insane things ALL THE TIME.  Sometimes they make sense; sometimes they don’t make sense.   He uses the big words he hears, and they may or may not belong where he puts them.  🙂

He’s becoming quite the little comedian.  The other day he had two t-shirts on.  He pulled one off.  As he was revealing the one that was on the inside, he says, “I bring you…THIS ONE!” and points to the second shirt…  Where does he get this stuff??

The week has otherwise been quiet!  Thankfully.  They started school and soccer this week.  They loved both and have been wonderful boys!  Derek even got ALL GREEN STICKERS at school!

No house painting being done by the two-year old or anything else of that nature.  Keep your fingers crossed for a wondrous week!  😉

***McCrazy Daily Lesson:  Be thankful for the quiet.  It often precedes the storm!***

Are your kids nuts!!  Would the happenings of YOUR house drive a sane person mad??  Tell me about it!!  Would love to post here on MCCRAZY DAILY LESSON!!!  The madness can always be used to learn a lesson!

Too Much Time to Think

Tonight, I managed to get the boys in bed by 7:30 pm.  I was in bed by 8 pm.  It is now 10 pm, and I am wide awake.  This is still a VERY early night for me, lately.

All of this war talk is taxing!  I honestly feel bad for people in Washington.  I am not sure I have ever felt that way before, but if I think this much about it from the comfort of my home, I cannot imagine what it’s like to have to MAKE the decisions.

Do I know what would be best??  Absolutely not.  

Here’s what I DO know:

  • When we were in Desert Storm, I was very young.  I remember seeing the bombs exploding on TV and I remember asking my Dad why we were over THERE.  He said simply, as he so often did, we go there so they don’t come here.
  • If we strike, I am terribly worried that we will, in fact, be struck back.  Somewhere, in some way.  Yes, that includes the worry for our allies.  
  • Evil cannot be let to run rampant.  There must be some sort accountability; no matter who it is.

This is the point that I send it back up to God.  I believe in my heart God will guide the decisions, if He is allowed to do so.  I pray that He is with Washington during this time.  Helping ask the right questions, and supplying the right answers.  

As much as I fear war, I fear 9/11, more.

Do we want this again??  I hear the argument that it’s not our fight.  There’s not threat to us.  Should we wait until it happens again;  until it comes HERE?

This photo shows the strength of this GREAT nation, but I have no desire for the chance of a re-do…

***McCrazy Daily Lesson:  Tonight as we go to sleep, we pray for the safety of our country.  We pray for the safety of our ships and sailors.  We pray for help in the decision making process.  We pray for peace for all the loved ones involved.  Amen.***

Day Nineteen: Write What You Know?

What a good day to start back up!!

Why yes!  That is what I write, and believe me….I will be writing it WAY more, now!  😉

It’s easiest, for me, to write what I know.  Or, at least what I THINK I know.  😉  It, also, helps me get what I think I know straight.  For some reason, it always makes WAY more sense out than in.

Being that my husband deployed yesterday, I have a feeling you are going to be “hearing” a lot more of my thoughts on here, as I will not have anyone, at home, to share them with…lol.

I apologize ahead of time.  😉

Day Twelve: Quirky Writing Habits

I am not sure I have developed any yet??  My writing is a bit patchy at this point. 🙂  I will check back in next month, after the kids start school and I have more of a routine.  😉

If anyone has any habits they would like to share, feel free!!  Maybe your habit will become mine and set me on my way!!!  😉

***McCrazy Daily Lesson:  When in doubt, ask a friend!***
